FPD has a full slate of activities planned for Homecoming 2013, which will take place this year on Oct. 18-19.
“Save the date” cards will go out next week, and we hope all alumni will be able to attend. Reunion events for the classes of 1978, 1983, 1988, 1993, 1998, 2003 and 2008 are planned. Reunion organizers are listed below.
We’re also excited to announce the founding of the “Day School Dash,” a 5K event that will start and end on campus, along with a 1-mile “Fun Run” for the kids.
An alumni baseball game is also scheduled during the weekend festivities.
Homecoming 2013 kicks off with the dedication of the David and Janet Walton Reading Room at 3:45 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18.
We hope to see you there!
